Does anyone know how to uninstall the above program please?
I installed it on my pc to monitor my 15 year old son's online activity, but it has a blatantly obvious icon in the tray and I can't get it to work anyway. Its not showing up in my add/remove programmes nor anywhere else so how do I get rid? Thanks.

Lots of links on a Google search

Maybe try msconfig,start up.And if it is on there untick it.
That will not remove it but would stop it running at start up.
The only other way I can think of would be to go to Start.Search and type in the name of the program that you want and then remove it.
And be careful not to remove any thing that may be needed by other programs.

Or maybe give us the name of the free keylogger that you have installed.

@ buteman - hi, I did give the name..in the title. It was simply called 'Free Keylogger' and I downloaded it off Download.Com

If it's this one; click here try pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+U keys to bring up its control panel.Untick the box to hide it in uninstall list.
Surprised your AV hasn't been complaining about it unless you disabled the warning.

From rdave13's click here.

"Doesn't uninstall easily"

Pros: seemed to work as described

Cons: went to uninstall and it didn't. stopped the process, manually found two differrent directories and deleted and deleted the then invalid registry entries thanks to CCleaner.

Summary: limited application, wouldn't recommend

Looks like msconfig to stop it running then search to find it and remove it.
Then C Cleaner to get rid of the other bits and pieces left behind.

Well I seemed to have removed it - (don't know how though) but was left with the programmes icon in the 'past items' of the toolbar despite using CCleaner etc, however, this was got rid of by this excellent little programme click here

Thanks to everyone's suggestions :)
